Showcase which books you're going crazy over to be released!

Star Cursed (The Cahill Witch Chronicles, #2)

Star Cursed
(The Cahill Witch Chronicles #2)
by Jessica Spotswood
Release Date: June 18, 2013

With the Brotherhood persecuting witches like never before, a divided Sisterhood desperately needs Cate to come into her Prophesied powers. And after Cate's friend Sachi is arrested for using magic, a war-thirsty Sister offers to help her find answers—if Cate is willing to endanger everyone she loves.

Cate doesn't want to be a weapon, and she doesn't want to involve her friends and Finn in the Sisterhood's schemes. But when Maura and Tess join the Sisterhood, Maura makes it clear that she'll do whatever it takes to lead the witches to victory. Even if it means sacrifices. Even if it means overthrowing Cate. Even if it means all-out war.

I fell in love with the first installment of this series, Born Wicked, from the very first page. It was full of historical loveliness, witchy joo-joo, and a slew of fantastic characters. So, needless to say, i am MORE than thrilled to finally be able to sink my teeth into book number 2. 

Teaser Tuesday: Walking Disaster

Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme where you give a quote from the current book you have your teeth sunk into. Make sure it's spoiler free!

Walking Disaster (Beautiful, #2)

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
(Beautiful #2)
"The hairdryer was turned on in the bathroom, and I looked at the clock. The only thing worse than having to be okay with Abby leaving on a date with Parker, was Parker having to wait on Abby in my apartment. Keeping my cool for a few minutes while she got her purse and left was one thing. Looking at his ugly mug while he sat on my couch, knowing he was planning how to get into her pants at the end of the night, was another."

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1)Gameboard of the Gods
by Richelle Mead
Release Date:  June 4, 2013

In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.

When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.

GAH! I am borderline obsessed with pretty much every series that Richelle Mead has published. Vampire Academy, Dark Swan, Georgia Kincaid... you name it, i freaking love it. So, why wouldn't i be drooling over her new future release? Especially because it sounds like the perfect mix of ingredients to make a stand-out novel.
